How Gunsonics!® Works
1. The iPhone headset is worn under ear-protectors, bringing you conversation and natural sounds
2. Using Essency’s Advanced DSP ‘Real-Time Engine’ running on the iPhone, sounds from the microphone are fed to your ear as they happen, with no lags, echoes or delays.
3. Ear-Protectors provide the essential noise baffling protection for your ears
4. When you shoot, no sound from the gunshot reaches your ears apart from a harmless ‘pop’
Gunshot waveform. This will deafen you!
Gunshot after GunSonics! ‘Pop’
5. With six presets customised for each type of gun, GunSonics! is suitable for all firearm types from shotguns to rifles. From pistols to revolvers but even if you choose the wrong preset, GunSonics! will never let your hearing be damaged.
6. If you fire a heavy calibre machine gun or are in a shooting group, GunSonics!® will protect you.

Advanced DSP ‘Real-Time Engine’
Based on our award winning Awareness!@ The Headphone App audio engine, GunSonics! outperforms the most expensive electronic ear protectors on every level.
Featuring six custom presets each finely tuned to react to each weapons characteristic firing sound, from single shot revolvers to automatic rifles.
Auto Fire Selector
Choose between single shot or automatic weapons. Auto fire should also be selected when a group are firing.
ClearVoice - Built-in
Makes any speech picked up by the microphone clearer and easier to hear, even over gunshots.
GunSonics! is not a replacement for ear protectors/defenders/muffs! You must always use high-quality ear protectors over your earphones when using GunSonics!®
We STRONGLY suggest that you DO NOT purchase or use any ear-protectors with an SNR of less than 30dB and preferably aim for models with 33dB, 35dB or higher. Many folding models and many electronic ear-defenders offer dangerously low levels of passive protection and are useless with rifles and higher powered weapons.
At this time we only certify the Apple supplied iPhone earphones/pods for use with GunSonics!®
